About This Item

France, 1749. In French and Latin. Volume IX (nine) only. A rare book "with approval and privilege of the King." The French Revolution and the persecution of the Roman Catholic Church in France in the 1790s makes this a truly rare volume to have survived as many churches were looted and damaged and clergy persecuted, imprisoned and executed. From title page: "La Sainte Bible en Latin et an Francois, avec des notes litterales, critiques et historiques, des prefaces et des dissertations, tirees du Commentaire de Dom Augustin Calmet, Abbe de Senones, de M. l'Abbe de Vence, & des Aureurs les plus celebres; pour faciliter l'intelligence de l'Ecriture Sainte. Ouvrage enrichi de Cartes Geographiques & de Figures. Tome Neuvieme. A Paris, Rue S. Jacques, Chez: Gabriel Martin, a l;etoile; J.B. Coignard & Ant. Boudet, a la Bible d'or; Pierre-Jean Mariette, aux Colomnes d'Hercule; Hippolyte-Louis Guerin, a S. Thomas d'Aquin. M.Dcc. XLIX. Avec Approbation et Privilege de Roi." Wear typical of a 260 year old book. There is much wear to leather cover, which we believe is speckled calf. Five raised bands on spine with gilt illustrations and titles. The gilt is remarkably still bright. Wear to spine includes some chipping to top and bottom, three small worm holes and a partial separtion to leather cover. Front hinge is split on outside leather, but cover is firmly attached (sewn) inside. Corners are bumped, worn and chipped and you can see through to the paperboards inside the leather. Edges were once illustrated with gilt but that is largely worn away. Three inch corner section on the back cover is missing. Pages are bordered in faded red on all sides. Marbelized endpapers in green, yellow, white and pink have peeled a bit from bottom inside front cover and fep and there is some chipping. There is a large chip of endpaper missing from back inside cover. A laid in engraving proclaims the book "A Monsier Tuppin, Cure de Toury." and was probably done at time of printing. (Alas, we have not been able to identify the curate, but tourists do visit Toury's churches.) Pencilled booksellers notes on fep. There is some staining to bottom of feps and next four pages. Pages are bright, and most are suprisingly unblemished, but there is some foxing to some pages, most notably to lower corners. Several pages have bent corners. The rear endpage has a crease to top corner. Quotes are for illustrative purposes only and remain the property of their copyright holders.
